Would you like to participate in a 6 week, friendly, active, support group? What if this group would help you discover what your personal challenges are in your weight loss journey? Well let me invite you to join us in a 6 week program. Anyone is welcome to join us. Let me tell you how.
As we all start cooking today, have you thought about what you’ll do with all the leftovers? If you’re like me, it’s not the meal that is a problem, it’s all the nibbles afterwards. What’s your plan for leftovers?
I posted a blatantly honest Facebook post yesterday at about 4:00 pm ET. I was almost there! I needed to get my plan public to get me to the finish line. I was grasping at straws and thought “Let’s take it home with some good old home style accountability.” I have a problem following a […]
I can eat anything. But not if I want to stay at my goal weight. There’s something that happens long term after weight-loss. It’s that we think we can start eating normally and that we think we can eat anything. That is a danger zone.
Who is that girl? I don’t recognize her. That’s not me. Never stop looking. It’s what will keep you going.
There is a song that starts off my favorite exercise playlist. It’s not a firmly confident song like one you’d think you’d find starting of an exercise playlist. You know like a real “BOOM” song to get you going. But it seems to work for me. Why? Well because it tells a story. It tells […]
As promised, I wanted to get the BJs Bariatrics giveaway out here for you to enter! Yeah! I love giving things away. Thanks Bob for being so generous with the My Tiny Tank readers. We will be giving away three sample packs of Syntrax Nectar protein powder! If you haven’t ever been to the BJ’s […]
I buy lots of Halloween candy every year. You’d think being someone who tries to avoid sweets and refined sugars I’d avoid buying any candy. But it’s important that I buy this candy each year. Let me tell you why.
Sometime you see a quote which hits home. This morning I was doing my usual “wake up ” reading and I came across a quote. It really shows what power we have in ourselves to make change.
Ok I’m prepared to get into a bit of trouble for the things I will say tonight. But I just need to say it. So I hope I don’t offend anyone and it is certainly not my intention. This is merely how I feel. This post is about how I see being overweight most of […]
I’ve been plagued with a bad stomach for the last two months. Yeah I know two months. I’d say three weeks into it I decided it wasn’t normal WLS tiny tank weirdness. So I reached out to my Boston based hospital where I had my surgery 13 years ago.
There’s been millions of tiny rubber bands in my life lately. They’re everywhere. Very refreshing actually. I’m delighted my techno Whistler son is enthralled in a nontechnical indoor activity. Although Rainbow Loom seems to be ok everywhere… Recess, on the bus, in the car. Would you could you Rainbow Loom in a Car?
A couple weeks back a weight loss surgery friend asked me, “Any long term advice?” I thought yikes, me give advice. Ah well. Ah. And to tell you the truth it just came out. A whole bunch of stuff. Like it was part of me. And this is what came out.
Recently a support group member and weightloss surgery friend asked if I’d help purchase some portion control plates and bowls for distribution to other weight loss surgery friends. You see you couldn’t just buy one or two. You had to buy at least 25. Eeeeek! These are measurement dishes you can’t just buy anywhere.
Hey everyone! It’s coming…. the season of HOLIDAYS. Yes all of them. Halloween is weeks away. I’m giving away a FREE spot in the I’mperfect Life’s Holiday Survival Course. Last year I completed a “Get through the holidays without gaining” program at work. It made a world of difference for me. In fact I ended […]
The magic. We’ve all felt it. Or at least I hope you have felt the magic at some point in your life. The magic I am talking about is the one that comes with weight loss success. Sometimes it seems like some have more magic than others. But is it really magic?
Monday September 6th was a whirlwind. On short notice, I planned a day trip to NYC and I was meeting my lovely friend Marlene Joy Banded in the city. This impromptu kind of day was totally out of my routine. Not something I would normally do. But when a different and exciting type of opportunity […]
It’s Sunday morning. It’s a gift in our house. It’s a quiet slow start. Each person does their own thing and respects the others. Video games, working out, reading, internet browsing, catching up on blogs or reading emails. And then there is bacon. The smell of bacon brings everyone running. It’s how we roll here.
I’ve had to walk away from caffeine this week. Did I want to do it? No. But my tiny tank hurt so much I’ve been willing to do anything. Giving up my tea has been hard. But I haven’t flinched.
